The Secret to Perfect Stripes: The Grass Rake on Allett Mowers

Did you know that one of the secrets to achieving impeccable lawn stripes lies in a small but mighty feature of Allett mowers? Yes, it’s the grass rake, a remarkable feature that can raise your lawn care game to a whole new level. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the benefits of the grass rake on Allett mowers and why setting it correctly is crucial for enhancing those mesmerising stripes.


The Grass Rake: A Game-Changer

First things first, what exactly is the grass rake, and why is it such a game-changer? Well, imagine it as the equivalent of a barber’s comb for your lawn. Just like how a barber combs your hair in one direction to create a neat and uniform look the grass rake on Allett mowers works its magic by combing the grasses in the same direction ahead of cutting after it has been flattened by the front roller. This simple yet ingenious mechanism is one of the keys to achieving those picture-perfect stripes that make your lawn the envy of the neighbourhood. The rake can also stand up the weed grasses that lie flat in your lawn and make them more likely to be cut by your cylinder.



Setting it Right: The Importance of Proper Adjustment

Now, here’s where things get interesting. While the grass rake is undoubtedly a powerful tool for enhancing your lawn stripes, its effectiveness hinges on one crucial factor: setting it correctly. You see, the grass rake can be adjusted to different height allowing you to tailor its combing action to suit your specific lawn care needs.

For instance, when you’re scarifying your lawn to remove thatch and promote healthy growth, you’ll want to raise the grass rake or even remove it altogether. This prevents it from digging too deeply into the ground and causing your rear roller to spin ensuring that you can scarify with precision and without any unwanted side effects. Setting your rake too deeply will also drain life out of your battery.
